A new initiative will mean that more children with hearing or vision impairment living in regional and remote Australia will be able to talk to a specialist right from their living rooms.

The Minister for Disability Reform, Jenny Macklin, and the Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities and Carers, Jan McLucas, launched the new Remote Hearing and Vision Services for Children Initiative yesterday.

The initiative aims to improve health care services for children with hearing and vision impairment living in regional and remote areas in Australia. It is often difficult for families with children who need specialist treatment to travel the distance to access essential services.
